How do I add a custom column to my grid that contains a delete button?

I've found only one example of this but it's for the older version of the grid where the new one contains a data template in the grid column and/or a visual tree. I cannot figure out how to add a button into the data template.

grdCol =

new Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridViewColumn() { Name = "grdColDelete" };

 

DataTemplate dt =

new DataTemplate();

 

Button

 

btnDel = new Button(){Content = "Del", Width = 18, Height = 18, CommandParameter = new Binding("ApplicationCommands.Delete")};

 


//How do I get the btn into the data template??????????????????????????????

grdCol.CellTemplate = dt;

Hi Brian Thomas,

The proper way to do this would be to inherit from the GridViewColumn class and override the CreateCellElement method. There you can return any kind of UIElement that you want, which in your case will be your delete button. Please, try this and let me know if it does not help.
